中国私语 CHINESE WHISPERS – Recent Art from the Sigg Collection
January 30 – May 26, 2019
MAK EXHIBITION HALL – Vienna

An exhibition by the MAK, Vienna in dialogue with the collector Uli Sigg and in cooperation with the Kunstmuseum Bern and the Zentrum Paul Klee. With CHINESE WHISPERS: Recent Art from the Sigg Collection a comprehensive exhibition on Chinese contemporary art is coming to Vienna. Uli Sigg has been following the development of contemporary art in China since the late 1970s. In the mid-1990s, he started putting together the world’s most significant and representative collection of Chinese art.

A business journalist, entrepreneur, and Swiss ambassador to China, North Korea, and Mongolia (1995-1998), he had the chance to take a look behind the scenes of the social and economic developments dedicated to both tradition and the future, as China’s vision of a new Silk Road shows. Cultural and sociopolitical values form the frame of reference of the MAK exhibition. The museum creates a discursive platform by contrasting works from the Sigg Collection with objects from the MAK Collection.

This interplay highlights China’s contemporary art production as well as its aesthetic or iconographic references. The historical object becomes a vision machine for the contemporary.

Curator: Bärbel Vischer, Curator, MAK Contemporary Art Collection.

As I age, it is inevitable that certain physical issues need to be addressed and accepted. Gone are the days when I could paint huge works for hours on end. Although this realisation was initially very hard to accept, my daily practice of art has brought new dimensions to my world of art. Art is such consolation. Read more
